That’s what one regular on WebProWorld seems to think. Our poster WRMineo runs a few sites of his own and had an image of Paris Hilton on one of the sites. According to his story, Yahoo used the image on the Music side. He tells the story better though.

WRMineo says:

I was checking stats on a domain that I own, but don’t honestly stay on top of very well and I saw my top referrer for the month so far was Yahoo Music Upon checking the page, I see that they have a Paris Hilton photo that is not only from my site, it’s being hosted from my site IsNowLegal

Like most major online entities, they make it nearly impossible to find an avenue of approach and contact. I have sent an email to Yahoo! Launch Feedback but have gotten no response.

What would you do?

He did get a response from Yahoo though. It seemed a little strange. Here’s what he got:


Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Music.

It sounds as though the problem may be with your Windows Media Player
bandwidth detection. To change the speed at which the Windows Media
Player attempts to download content, please follow these steps:

1. Start Windows Media Player.
2. On the Tools menu, select “Options”.
3. Click the “Performance” tab.
4. In the “My connection speed is” box, choose the appropriate
setting. You should set this speed to match the speed of your Internet
5. Click “OK”.

Please let us know if this does or does not correct the problem for you.

Thank you again for contacting Yahoo! Customer Care.
